Off to camp

So, later today, i'll be back at camp for a week. So excited, but also sad to be away from home for another week. I feel like this summer has not been very productive in terms of the stuff I wanted to do around the house. I really wanted to grow a garden this year but that didn't exactly happen as I was gone so much. I wanted to brew more beer but we just couldn't get it together to do that either. Oh well, beer can be added to the fall projects and the garden will have to wait until next year. My parents are visiting for the weekend. My dad is in Reno for a golf tourney this week and mom came up for a couple days to hang out. We went to Johnny's for fantastic Italian last night and I baked this pie for desert. Notice how fancy I am getting with the pie decorating: This pie was strawberry, blueberry, rhubarb. Can you tell I'm obsessed with rhubarb?

Anyway, Nick, my parents and I played cards last night and then Nick and I taught my mom how to play Ticket to Ride...this nerdy train game that we love. My mom like it so much she wanted to play twice!

Also this weekend, we have 3 doggies in the house! Wallace of course, Nick's parents' dog Bhodie, and my parent's beagle Baily. It's been quite the circus. Here is Nick this morning with the dogs in our ridiculously ugly yard, trying to get them to do tricks for treats...we had mixed results.

My mom brought with her the used serger that she bought for me recently. We will be setting it up along with my yarn winder today in my new in-house crafty space. Pics of that will be coming soon. In the meantime, we made a frittata for breakfast with sauteed onions, summer squash and potato with cheddar on top served with ambrosia melon and toast with my homemade strawberry jam...yum...

Hope everyone has a great week! See ya'll in a couple days...
